Merry Monday Beautiful Season

Does the weekend go by fast for you?  It seems like the clock speeds up Saturday and Sundays!  And here it is Monday again....Merry Monday.

Here's Lesley's fabulous sketch for this week.



And here's my card!


How I've loved this Beautiful Season set!  I love the little Chickadees and this one is perfect to me.  He's a keeper although Stampin' Up! is retiring him.

Pixie's Playground will warrant a visit since I raided the snippet box for these pieces.  There's excitement brewing over there about a certain decopatch cow!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Beautiful Season, Four the Holidays (retired)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Handsome Hunter (retired), SU Markers (Old Olive, Garden Green, Handsome Hunter, Basic Gray, Basic Black, So Saffron, Real Red)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Handsome Hunter
Other:  Blender Pen, Circle Nesties (Spellbinder), Holly EF (Sizzix)

I hope you'll join us for Merry Monday and get a head start on those Christmas cards.  The rest of the DT has some fabulous samples to inspire you.

I so agree with you about that stamp although I make him into a robin! He's definitely being kept! Love that EF as well, will have to do a search for that.

Totally perfect Bonnie! Love the stamp you used and as always the whole card is gorgeous.

You mentioned the Playground in your post but haven't linked in yet - the girlies would love to see this beauty so please come and play!

Don't mind me, I'll be over in the corner on the three legged stool trying to milk the new addition to the Playground!
